Why do I need balustrades?
Balustrades are an imperative feature of every stair as they prevent people from falling off. In simple terms, any structure, building edge or stair that is 1 metre or higher above the ground needs a balustrade to stop people from falling over the edge. Mostly this is a legal requirement of the Australian Building Standards and Codes. If you’re unsure about what requirements you need to meet, contact the expert team at Active Metal.
What are the common types of balustrades?
Balustrades can be made in a range of different designs based on the needs and style preferences of the customer. Steel plate balustrades, steel picket balustrades, glazed frameless designs, and perforated metal options are just some of the common types. The experienced team at Active Metal can create the perfect balustrade and stair design to complement your commercial site.
